1. The receiving corps is not a perceived need

The LA Chargers are really deep at the wide receiver position, that is a fact. That depth and how much the team likes its options at receiver is likely going to keep Telesco from even considering Jones as a must-add.

Personally, I do not think it matters how good your receiving corps is. If you can add a future Hall of Famer for three quarters on the dollar you do it every time. Just imagine a top three of Keenan Allen in the slot with Julio Jones and Mike Williams on the outside.

Regardless of how I feel, the Chargers definitely do not need another wide receiver and they are fine with their options. Keenan Allen, Mike Williams and Tyron Johnson make up a really solid threesome and rookie Josh Palmer is perfect Mike Williams injury insurance.

Then you have a speedster in Jalen Guyton that can be used in his own unique way and two second-year receivers in K.J. Hill and Joe Reed, both of which have serious potential and did not really even get a chance to play much in 2020.

There are options for the Bolts and with Jared Cook and Austin Ekeler, the Chargers are already loaded with some really good weapons. The Chargers are not as desperate for a WR1 as other teams are.
